The Darn Tough Full Cushion wraps comfort and performance into one award-winning package. This Editors' Choice winner stands out for its wide range of temperature regulation attributed to its mid-weight merino-wool blend. It wicks, breathes well, and provides unbeatable durability. Because of its great performance, we think it's an excellent option for a wide range of outdoor pursuits in all sorts of weather, complete with a male-specific fit.
The race for Editors' Choice was tight as the Smartwool PhD Crew sock proved to be much more comfortable with its super cozy and thick merino-blend sole. However, the Smartwool PhD wasn't as breathable or as durable. It also doesn't come with an awesome lifetime guarantee like the Darn Tough! This makes it a better contender with better value. Overall, this ultra-durable Editors' Choice award winner will keep your feet comfortable and protected mile-after-mile, year after year.
